This is just another reason why I love this damn city. There are so many interesting things to look at right outside our door.

The Art of Flight part II: Take Off

You followed all the booking and checking-in advice in "Part I," right? Okay, cool. Half the battle is done. The rest is just an exercise in maintaining sanity in an increasingly absurd concoction of security theatre, inept tourists, and over-priced…

Love is a Battlefield.

You know that age old Corinthians verse, “Love is patient, love is kind…” (Corinthians 13:4)? You know the one. Your cousin had the pastor deliver it at her wedding. It’s total bullshit. And the reason isn’t because I’m jaded and…

I Share. Therefore I Am.

What happens when we mistake social static for real human connections? Bitter, unending loneliness. But don’t take my word for it.

Thoughts on the Creative Career

Thank the universe that Ze Frank is around to remind us how untameable the creative beast is and how to deal with it. I'm keeping this video close by.

Let’s Live in Space

Did you know people have been planning our interstellar adventures since before you were in diapers? Hard to believe, but baby, it's almost time.

A Short Lesson in Perspective

Let it marinate. Incubate. Let it sit. Terms of endearment for your percolating ideas that in today's pace, get forgotten.

Buckminster Fuller - Everything I Know

I'm not really sure I understand a lot of what ol' Bucky put out, but I'm pretty tempted to give his 42 hour lecture series a solid try. Why? Because a) there's probably a lot of genius packed in there,…

Atomic Bomb Testing & Humans: Found Footage

I stumbled on this a couple days ago while stumbling down the YouTube rabbit hole. It's bizarre found footage of American soldiers witnessing a test bomb blast in a southern state around the sixties or seventies.

Female Body Armour

I'm not sure if I'm a feminist and I'm not sure if I'm a pacifist. So, this article about ill-fitting male armour on female soldiers really conflicted me. Of course women soldiers should have comfy bullet-deflecting gear that doesn't chafe…

Bendito Machines

"Jossie Malis": makes stunning videos that feel like Indonesian shadow theatre while telling the demise of a simple human-like species. The species' own love of machines earns its demise every time. Film IV (above) is my favourite.

Everything Flows

Our friend Stu released this beautiful short film last night. He claims that's white soap in there. Sure Stu. Either way it's gorgeous and absolutely mesmerizing. I suggest you watch it in full-screen HD with the lights out and the…

Each Moment is the Universe

A boy is reborn with memories of his previous lives and tries to fix the mistakes of the past. A beautiful short film about the cycle of life. Turn off the lights, put on the headphones, and watch in full-screen.…

One Nine Nine Four

If you were to look back on my life and find the things that moulded me into what I am today, 90’s punk rock would be way up on that list. It was hard, fast, fun, political music that spoke…

Everything is a Remix: Pt 4

Kirby Ferguson has released his fourth and final instalment of Everything is a Remix, and it is a damn masterpiece. We’ve written about this series before, but if you haven’t seen it, I recommend you watch them all. It’s a…

Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle

An amazing talk about how we interact with and develop software… then how to change the world. Fascinating and inspiring. Stick with it until the end. It gets really good. Via @fchimero

Project Unbreakable *Trigger Warning*

This site is truly heart wrenching. Victims of sexual violence display the words that their attackers used on them during their abuse. I was surprised and uplifted by the number of men that chose to take part of this. Sadly,…

What Hope Looks Like in NYC

She pushes a cart full of sticky cans and bottles, hoping today she’ll have enough to feed her two kids who are only steps behind. Entre Nos is a Spanish foreign film about Mariana, a single mother of two young…

Wilson Miner - When We Build

An incredibly inspiring talk by Wilson Miner from this year’s Build Conference in Belfast. It may be targeted to web designers, but it applies to anyone who creates anything in our civilization. It’s an amazing talk. Watch it, then create…

Amazing Pumpkin Sculptures

Happy Halloween, mother uckers. We love you! Ooh, and if you like that, you’ll love cake face zombies.

Underwater Art Gallery

Freaky. My favourite image in the underwater gallery is the crazy dude looking up from his wheelchair. I love it!
